Owner info

Year Purchased: 2007

About the owner: Grace and Ivan live full time on the property where we keep busy with the Landscaping, and maintenance. I am Costa Rican and Ivan is Canadian, we love Costa Rica for it's friendly people and abundant plant and animal life.

Why the Owner Chose Alajuela Province, Costa Rica:
After living in Canada for 28 years and raising two children, my Husband and I decided it was time to leave the Cold White North and find some peace, tranquility, and warmth. After travelling the country we decided to settle in the San Mateo area, the property produces avocados, mangos, lemons, oranges, star fruit, and attracts an abundance of exotic birds and wild life.

The Unique Benefits at this Bungalow:
There are many amenities within a short drive from the property, beaches, golf, sport fishing, surfing, boating, restaraunts, shopping, crocodile watching, adventure parks, which can be enjoyed on day trips. Then the tourist hustle can be left behind while you rest beside the pool and plan your next adventure.
